To Do List 2023/24

Season of Blood

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #warhammercommunity having covered my achievements over the past hobby season, it's now that I look forward to the new one.

For once my list is looking significantly different. Sure, everything I still haven't completed from previous seasons is on here, but as I ticked off 17 items from last season's list [and already finished the Psychophage, which I planned to be in this Season's] there was a huge gap for things to do. 

As previous years I am going to begin with these two items, which are enshrined as the most important things TO DO every season…
  • Develop a more healthy hobby/life balance - go to bed at a decent hour[ish]
  • Continue to play games, they bring me so much joy and fun...
But for my painting goals let's start with Tyranids:
  1. #DreadTober - High Rule Dude
  2. #DreadTober - 2x Screamer Killers
  3. Leviathan - Neurotyrant and 2x Neuroloids:
  4. Leviathan - 5x Barbgaunts
  5. Leviathan - Winged Tyranid Prime
  6. Leviathan - 3x Von Ryan's Leapers
  7. Leviathan - 20x Termagants
  8. Leviathan - 11x Neurogaunts
  9. Leviathan - Rippers...
  10. Update all my old Termagants
  11. Genestealer Cult Sentinels
I'd originally thought I may end up painting my new Leviathan Dark Angels and elements from my Indomitus box - to be my #ArmiesOnParade2024 entry. But it may be the Tyranids as I'm not sure I can reconcile yet how to do my Primaris:
  1. Decide on how I will paint my Primaris... Silver and red 'Guardians of the Covenant style
  2. Dark Angel - Deathwing Terminators
  3. Dark Angel - The Lion
  4. Dark Angel - Old skool Crayola Whirlwind
  5. Dark Angel - Proteus Land Raider
  6. Leviathan - Brutalis Dreadnought
And the Death Guard, they're less of a priority with all the new Dark Angels and nids but for reference:
  1. Myphitic Blight Hauler
  2. Gellerpox Infected
  3. Dark Apostle
Build and paint a Turnip28 regiment:
  1. 3 Snobs
  2. 4 units of Followers
The Big Build continues, as always this season. The principle is sound and pays dividends with those items that tend to be off-list that get built through to painting and completion. It worked well over the festive season, when I couldn't prime anything. Some of these have been on my list for a while, so hopefully I'll finally get them built.
  • Dark Angel - Crayola Whirlwind
  • Dark Angel - Proteus Land Raider
  • Build some new terrain? 
    • Shrine of the Aquila
    • Galvanic Magnavent
    • Sector Imperialis terrain
  • Genestealer Cult Neophytes
  • Genestealer Cult Acolytes
  • 2 Armigers - Not sure about this, I haven't even bought them but I do fancy another 2, just in case so if I buy them they'll probably get built and painted
I've had a number of items that I classed as pipe dreams, both painting and building and they're still knocking around so here's they are just for my records as I don't want to forget about them, but with so many new items on my decks I must be realistic that they aren't getting done this season:
  • Tyranid Promethium Relay Pipes
  • Tyranid Bastion Crater [I have zero intent to do this this season, if ever, just want to remind myself it exists]
  • Space Hulk Genestealers - get them based!
  • 3 Tyranid Lictors
  • 3 Tyranid Shrikes
  • 5 Dark Angel Veterans/Command Squad
So that's my 2023/24 list, again a lot for me. All the best for your own efforts this season.


  1. Hi Dave, what's the best way to get in touch? I've started a blog myself and I'd love to ask you a few questions :) Cheers

    1. I have a gmail account under dwezpsi, happy to answer any questions.

  2. I have a couple of pieces from Leviathan that I will be painting this season. I couldn't resist those new Terminators, even though I know that GW will bring out some busy-as-hell Deathwing versions. Can't wait to see those new Nids with your paint scheme!

    1. You won't have long to wait, the Psychophage is TO DONE! and the pics are due tomorrow, the last of my Season of Rust?

  3. Well, it's not going to be a slow hobby year, that's for sure! There's a lot to take on there. Can't wait to see how far you get with it. Best wishes for the new season.
